Do you know why tiny Daphnia of zooplankton suddenly appears in any water pool or paddles, or rice fields, and vanish in winter?
Can you believe if you heard that they FLY in the air?

A curious Japanese photographer urged to know the wonder of daphnia and its kinds.

He continued to observe the nearby rice fields and swimming pools, visited sometimes a lake in the distance, bringing them home back, looking after and put some experiments, finally came to conclude it does surely FLY in the sky!

Introducing the wisdom of Daphnia for survival in tough natures with beautifully never-seen-before clear pictures taken by his special camera.
